Fish pedicures are creating something of a splash in the D.C. area, where a northern Virginia spa has been offering them for the past four months. John Ho, who runs the Yvonne Hair and Nails salon with his wife, Yvonne Le, said 5,000 people have taken the plunge so far.
“This is a good treatment for everyone who likes to have nice feet,” Ho said.
And I want a scrotum that's less wrinkled but you don't see me dropping my balls into a fish tank......OK, there was that one time........at band camp.
He said he wanted to come up with something unique while finding a replacement for pedicures that use razors to scrape off dead skin.
Ho was skeptical at first about the fish, which are called garra rufa but typically known as doctor fish. They were first used in Turkey and have become popular in some Asian countries.
Usually with chips.
Curly, Larry, Mow
A Milwaukee man was accused of shooting his lawn mower because it wouldn't start. Keith Walendowski, 56, was charged with felony possession of a short-barreled shotgun or rifle and misdemeanor disorderly conduct while armed.
Please, don't tell me it was an old-fashion push-mower.
According to the criminal complaint, Walendowski said he was angry because his Lawn Boy wouldn't start Wednesday morning. He told police quote, "I can do that, it's my lawn mower and my yard so I can shoot it if I want."
A woman who lives at Walendowski's house reported the incident. She said he was intoxicated.
I thought everyone mowed their lawn drunk?
Walendowski could face up to an $11,000 fine and six years and three months in prison if convicted.
He better tell his inmates he killed the Lawn Boy and leave it at that.
(AP) Two practical jokers are behind bars for setting their passed-out drinking buddy's crotch ablaze while boozing in Grover Beach. Matthew Craig Pillers and Jack Brent Nicholas Keiffer pleaded no contest to a felony great bodily injury charge.
Prosecutors say the 22-year-old Pillers, a parolee, was sentenced to two years in prison and the 19-year-old Keiffer got 45 days in San Luis Obispo County jail.
Elliot Tuleja was passed out when the men poured cologne on the man's groin and set him on fire on Jan. 18. Tuleja had second-degree burns on his testicles.
What happened to the good old days when you just shaved your passed out friend's testicles and then beat them with a hammer? What's this world coming to?
(AP) It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in a Danish amusement park where Santa Clauses from around the world are gathering for their annual three-day congress.
Hey, if Elvis can do it in Collingwood...to each his own.
Now in it's 51st year, the World Santa Claus Congress starting Monday brings together 136 red-clad delegates, mostly from Scandinavia but also as far away as Russia, Japan and the United States.
Japanese Santas? The people who gave us the "Poop Museum"?
The activities on the program include a bicycle parade, Hula Hoop dancing and a dip in the Copenhagen harbor.
OK, now that's too much information......next up: the 47th Annual World Satan Congress.
Don't worry, bee happy
